  • Rubber Covered Aluminum Body
  • Water Resistant
  • Thumb Indents and Finger Ridges
  • Soft Carrying Case

The UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular from Celestron offers the higher magnification of 10 power and the light transmission ability of 25 millimeter objectives. This makes for a lightweight monocular of only 4 ounces with a still very manageable size of 4½ inches without losing the extra up-close ability. The near focus is 26 feet, allowing quick detailed views of that unexpected flyby. A water resistant, stylish, rubber covered, aluminum housing puts strength and protection of the optic as a prime priority. Thumb indents and finger ridges secure the grip when the last thing wanted is a dropped monocular. Drop it in the back pack, carry bag or coat pocket, but don't leave home without it.

          ...thanks to BH for quick delivery. This monocular is amazing. It has a very clear and bright image. I was surprised, when used it first. It has an excellent image quality, which was surprise for me - with low price. It;s a compact, very easy for take on journeys. Special thanks to Celestron.

            Comments about Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular:

            I admit it, I bought this because I work on the 12th floor, where I have a terrific view of construction in progress, high mountains, and occasionally wildlife. I also thought it would be nice for hiking and for scouting climbing routes, since it is so much smaller and lighter than my good binoculars.

            The optics aren't up to the same standard as the aforementioned expensive binoculars, but for about 1/50th of the price, this monocular isn't bad.

            One caution: consider getting 8 power or less, rather than 10. A hand-held 10-power monocular magnifies every little twitch or shake, and it takes some practice to keep it steady.

            OK scope but has a flare-causing defect

              Comments about Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular:

              I reviewed this scope previously, and praised it for its quality materials and smooth operation, however, this scope has a critical defect that causes alot of flare from the front lens. You can see the defective coating by doing this: Take the scope outside a look down at the inside-edge of the front lens, at a 45 degree angle and rotating the scope you will see a thin bright gold-ish reflection, this is the defect that causes large amounts of internal flare in the lens. I returned the scope to the store and looked at another one there and it had the same defect. Don't believe me?, then do this: position the scope so the thickest part of the defect is on the bottom, now while looking through the scope rotate the entire thing- you will see the flare decrease/rotate around.

              This is disappointing for a Celestron product, it should have been halted at quality-control because this problem makes this scope, no matter how inexpensive, completely unusable.

              Comments about Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular:

              Easily fits in shirt pocket, a breeze to use. Nice solid feel and smooth positive eyepiece focus. Works well for eyeglass wearers.
              I was very pleased and surprised to learn it uses a BK-7 prism, which is the highest-quality and purest glass, in a scope of this price that is surprising!
              The coating on the front lens is high-quality.
              What could improve is the coating on the eyepiece, it could be a darker-green cast to aid in light transmission and reduce reflections for eyeglass wearers.
              All in all a solid, nice little scope, worth more than the price.

              Comments about Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular:

              When I had my first glimpse on this item, I was actually looking for a powerful, affordable, weather-sealed monocular, that is small and light enough to fit in my pocket or on my belt. I do have a Pentax binocular, also waterproof, bright and easy to use, however too large and heavy to carry around without a backpack. I received this item in only half a week after the order is placed, and it is a surprise! Tried it on some bird spotting and astronomic guidance, and it worked far beyond its price.

              I would be happier if Celestron had improved the eyecup on this, like the ones on their larger binoculars, so that it can protect the eyepiece better. Also, a utility clip or wrist strap will help a lot for easier carry and deployment.

              Comments about Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Roof Monocular:

              I use this sturdy little monocular for spotting golf ball locations. Being close to 70, my distance eyesight needs the help at 150 yards and over. This Celestron is sturdy, easy to focus and easy to use. It's a monocular with a nylon case and a belt loop thus easier to misplace or lose than one with a clip.
